Pedo Lobby Scrambles: Death Penalty for Pedophiles Act Introduced


A Florida Republican is proposing legislation that would require convicted child sex abusers to face either the death penalty or life in prison.

Rep. Anna Paulina Luna said the "No Repeat Child Sex Offenders Act" will be introduced in the House on Thursday, according to Fox News. She outlined her philosophy in a pair of social media posts.

"You cannot rehabilitate predators. If you rape children, you deserve the death penalty," Luna posted on X.

"Death penalty. It will come to the floor. Let's see who tries to protect pedophiles," she wrote on Facebook.

In comments to Fox, Luna noted that her bill applies to those who hire minors for sex.

"Anyone who is even going to consider exploiting someone like this - and you can't tell me that they don't know that these people are trafficked or that they don't know that that's a young child - but the fact is & if you're knowingly doing this, you have to be held accountable," she said.

"It's pretty black and white."

The bill would also impose the death penalty or life in prison on convicted sex traffickers. Under current law, sex traffickers may receive a maximum of 10 years in prison and a fine.

"It's absurd to me, not only as a new mom, but also if you just look at some of the federal statutes, that there's not more strict punishments for people that are doing this," Luna said.
